Preferred Solution: Black desktop, no icons, no taskbar even after windows reinstall

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I even did a windows reinstall, but the problem is still there! (btw, since then, windows fails to install many updates including IE11, so I now have IE8)




You reinstalled Windows and have a black screen, can't open programs how are you running Windows update?

Brand and model of the PC?

Did you reinstall using a Windows disc or a recovery partition on the hard drive?

As you have tried many things that i would suggest, i am wondering if the disk you are using to install the updates is corrupt?

Have you to tried to use another disk?

I can provide you with the links if needed.

Try Restore Desktop Icons and Taskbar.

Download the .vbs file and save it to your hard drive.

Double-click the .vbs file. You will be prompted when the script is done.

Restart the computer.

Hello,

I am having the problem of windows booting to NO taskbar or desktop icons, I have run malware bytes and Avast5 and there os no reported problems.

Sadly I have run combofix before I saw all the warnings NOT to do that....WHY?

I have the log report is anyone willing to explain why one should not run combofix?

Any assistance would greatly be appreciated!!

A:Windows boots to NO taskbar or desktop icons

Hello,is anyone willing to explain why one should not run combofix?Sure. To quote Papakid:Running ComboFix by yourself is like performing open heart surgery on yourself--the scalpel and other surgical tools that is ComboFix is meant to be wielded by a highly trained surgeon only in emergencies or dire circumstances. When the surgeon is thru s/he leaves the room. So combofix should be removed from a system once it has accomplished its job, unlike an AV that is there to protect you from future infections.. . . CF does make some alterations to your system if you run it. Even if you had no malware removed and run the uninstall command, some things may be different now on your system. I can tell you that one thing is that all your restore points will be flushed out and a new one created. There is a good reason to do that when you have a severe infection--but if you aren't infected you might need those restore points.That said, please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic. Please be sure to include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.Orange Blossom

Hi,

I am facing this problem with my laptop. It seems it has something to do with the Winfixer problem.

I am unable to see any of my desktop icons or the taskbar. Neither can I right click on my desktop. It has totally deactivated. I am using my laptop through the task manager-->New Task option. Please help as I have tried to work on it and have finally given up.

A:Desktop icons and taskbar disappeared [MOVED FROM WINDOWS]

A temporary solution may be task manager, new task, then type "explorer".
That should bring up the familiar windows explorer so you can don't have to use task manager all the time. As for why this has happened, not sure, will look up your particular problem.

My son gave me his Presario 700 laptop. Yesterday I turned it on and all it would do is go to the wallpaper and then nothing. I do not get any icons or start button. I was able to get on line by going to the ctrl,alt,del and getting the task window and doing a search.

I can not find the restore disk and my son is in Irag, so I can not ask him where it is. My question is, is there a way to restore by using the task window to find the file?

Thanks,

A:Windows desktop doesn`t show. No icons or taskbar etc.

Is this Windows XP? I guess what you could do is search for rstrui.exe, it's the system restore utility, and try that out. You can find it in C:\Windows\system32\Restore (at least on my computer.)

(Note: I don't know whether this problem involves malware or not, so I made the exact same thread in the Hijack This Forum also)

My computer uses Windows XP with McAfee Security Center.

When I turned my computer on yesterday the loading process stopped before it would run after it got to my background. Thus, the CPU stops as if everything is done loading and the startup process has finished, but my taskbar and desktop icons don't appear. Windows Task Manager is the only thing that I can get to appear.

Through Windows Task Manager I can perform tasks with CTRL-ALT-DEL, so I am able to access the internet and Hijack This. System Restore hasn't worked to fix the problem either, as I've done it 3 times and it hasn't helped. I think I have the same problem as this guy:

Hi,
I'm running a Dell Inspiron 6400 with Windows XP Home on it.
My problem is as such:
When ever I close an explorer window, the taskbar and desktop icons disappear for a few seconds...Its quite annoying, and it also closes any other Windows I have open.
Programs don't seem to be affected...

Has anyone come across this problem? And are there any solutions?
Much thanks for any help rendered.

All of a sudden the following symptoms (all at the same time)::
1. Taskbar icons gone (replaced by a neutral identical icon) except Edge and Store
2. In File Explorer, no longer thumbnails, no icons either, simply blank, but names show
3. All desktop icons gone; but their names still show and they "work"
4. When I rightclick to "Properties" (on desktop icons, or File Explorer items) nothing happens
5. Control Panel no longer shows icons, names only
Seems rather dramatic.... Anybody any idea?

Please try to right click on the start icon and select Command prompt administrator, give admin permissions and copy/paste this into the window that opens and press enter sfc /scannow . If you decide to type it in, please notice the space between the sfc and the /. We want it to say no integrity violations were found.

I have removed the visible shortcut arrow on shortcut icons.
This has the consequence of turning all the icons black.

Is it possible to restore the icons without having to re-initialize the visible shortcut arrow?

And secondly please how do I re-initialize the visible shortcut arrow?

For example, on my taskbar, Firefox is orange and blue. And Opera is red. I want to make them black and white.

How can I do this?

Please help me with this. This morning I turned on my PC and there was no desktop icons (just one stats.php-id_n2v....which was not there before), or taskbar, just wallpaper. I tried to open task manager with ctrl+alt+del but no luck. I can right click on desktop and make shortcut, make new folder but I can not open it. I can delete it. Show desktop icons is checked.
I started my PC in safe mode, and all my files are there.
I also restored my PC to a previous point and still nothing. Just wallpaper with that one icon.
Please help me. I tried to find a solution online, but every solution includes access to task manager with ctrl+alt+del, which I can not access.

A:No Desktop Icons and Taskbar

Try restarting the computer again. If the taskbar does not appear when you restart then you may have something interrupting the login process. If the taskbar comes up but the Internet does not work it may need to be repaired. System Restore has not been helpful to me either in instances like this.

BTW, is SBC Yahoo anti-virus software?

I just cant seem to figure out why on my nd monitor which is the main one My taskbar slightly covers my Desktop Icons I just cannot seem to get it to not do it Only way to fix it is to not Icons under Desktop Taskbar the use the Align to Grid But then all Icons have to be aligned by hand One option was to adjust the vertical icon spacing but I had to adjust it at such a large space or such a small one that it was too much Attached is a screenshot showing the example I dont know why the desktop icons are sitting under the quot locked quot taskbar I dont use any auto hide on the taskbar Is there anyway to actually adjust the grid itself In that where I can tell it where the last line of icons can be BTW a little info the monitor is a Dell E WFP quot Widescreen LCD connected via DVI to the GTS video card Also one more bit of wierd Desktop Icons under the Taskbar info As I mentioned above I have two of these quot I dual screen extend the displays The one having the problem is the right monitor It always puts the desktop icons under the taskbar If I make the left quot the quot main quot display it displays just fine So for some reason this monitor which is identical to the other one keeps forcing or telling Windows to adjust the grid and putting the last line of desktop icons under the taskbar Dixit

I think my computer was infected with all kinds of bad stuff. I finally managed to get some Virus/Spyware software loaded and I think I've removed (most of)the problems. But I have one lingering issue...after being on my computer for a little while, my desktop and taskbar disappear. I don't even have the ability to "right-click" on my wallpaper (which is still visible). BTW, I'm using XP. HELP!!!

Hi there. After my pc crashed while playing Command and Conqer 3, every time I boot up my pc there are no desktop icons or taskbar, and its really really slow. I can bring up ctrl alt and delete task manager.
All i can see is my desktop background.

Things I have tried:
system restore
repair install windows xp
download some tweaks from kellys corner
virus scan
SFC /scannow


I really am clueless as to what to do, and if it came to a format how would I get my important files onto cd? or how do i get into 'my computer'?


Thanking in advance,

Daniel

A:No Desktop Icons or Taskbar - HELP!

Sounds like you have a problem with explorer. Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and open task manager. On the processes tab look for explorer.exe. If it is there, end the process. Either way, next go to File, New Task and type in explorer.exe. What happens??

I had a computer at work that did this once as a result of a virus. If this gets you going again, immediately run your virus/malware programs.

First off hello !

About a week ago I restarted my system and I had No taskbar or desktop icons. The only I can access anything is through the task manager ( ctrl-alt-del ). and then New task, run etc. I've read several threads on the subject at varoius sites and it seems that there are no fixes for this problem, although I think $teve from this forum is on the right track. He asked another member/ guest at what did they just install when the problem occurred.
I say this because I had just updated my ATI video card drivers and installed a program as an add on calles Earthsim. Shortly after I started experianceing the problem
Tell me am I going to have to format my hard drive or is there a Fix

Hi all,

This is my first post. My computer is missing a desktop, taskbar and all the icons. When the computer comes on it loads fine. I click on my user name or any other user and even guest and they're all the same. I can't access any documents there are no icons and I can't do control+alt+delete.

Do I have any hope of saving my computer there are a lot of files I would like to retrieve.

I am able to access the internet on the computer only because i still get pop ups and i use those to go online.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,


C.

I saw a thread on here about this issue and did some of the things suggested, but obviously didn't know what to do with the information I gathered. I was online chatting one day and my icons and taskbar vanished. I can still get around through the task manager. Explorer.exe will not stay up. I've downloaded hijackthis and winpfind3u, also shellexview (because another site told me to). I ran them and saved the info., but none of it means anything to me.

I just did a load of windows updates now when I start my machine I have no taskbar or desktop icons.

Explorer.exe does not start automatically but if you go into task manager you can start it (it opens onto 'my documents').

Everything seems to open fine from here - iexplorer can be started and I can get online.

Also when I right click on the desktop I get nothing.

I am running XP SP2.

Please help!!!

Just fixed this. Adaware 6.0 Personal - found it and sorted for me.

It picked upa registry key which it described as 'possible vulnerability'. I can't remeber the key exactly but it said something about 'shell ()'.

Anyway - checked to fix it and resarted explorer and everythings back to normal.

The problem could very well be the result of your overclocking, but lets not go there yet.
Sounds like a memory problem, take memtest

Hi, I have a kiosk PC that is looking pretty good however I have two outstanding issues. 
 
The users can still right click on applications on the taskbar and receive a context menu even though I've disabled the context menu in the group policy editor.
User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Start Menu and Taskbar/Remove access to the context menus for the taskbar - Enabled
 
And I can't figure out how to remove the "show desktop" icon in the systems notification tray.
 
Thanks in advance for any help
Megan Armstrong.
 

A:Windows 7 Restricted User - Remove Right click on taskbar icons; Remove show desktop icon

Hello Megan,

Hope you're doing fine.

Disabling context menu from application on the taskbar
Please note the task bar context menu for any application for windows 7 is sub-divided into two sections :

   a. Jumplist(to access recently opened files) 
   b. Creating a new instance of the application, Pin/Unpin, Close window

We can only disable the Jump List of the Taskbar context menu but not the "new instance creation, Pin/Unpin, close window"

Please follow the steps below to disable jump list:
1. Right-click on the Taskbar and then select Properties.
2. Click on the Start Menu tab and uncheck "Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar".
3. Click OK.

Disabling Show Desktop from the system tray
Regarding the requirement of disabling the "Show Desktop" button alltogether from the System tray, this is by design.

There are no ways to remove it. All we can do is to disable aero peek at Taskbar properties by right clicking and uncheck the option "Use Aero Peek to preview the desktop".
There's a third party software which addresses this sopecific purpose but I'm not pretty sure if this works perfectly for Windows 7 SP1 as well. Please refer to the link below.

The icons on my mother's pc are missing, the taskbar is gone as well, she keeps getting redirected to irrelevant sites when clicking on a link in ie. Also, the only way to run any program internet explorer,chat, email, is by getting to the run menu via ctrl+alt+del+ task manager. I have tried system restore. it worked once but has since gone back to the "missing icons taskbar" status.I have gone so far as to download hijackthis. but when i finally get it open to run the scan it disaapears so fast aftr scanning, i can't find the "logfile" to post on here. Please help . you guys rock!

Following a Skype update today, some of my desktop and taskbar (also Start Menu) icons immediately disappeared, only to be replaced with standard Windows icons. This involved mostly Microsoft and Adobe programs, including Outlook, Word, Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat, but also Google Earth and QuickTime Player.
I've carried out a Icon cache rebuild, but this has not restored the original icons, resulting instead in standard .exe icons or blank (i.e. white) icons.
When I try to change the icon for these programs, I generally get messages similar to this one (for Adobe Reader):
Windows cannot find file %SystemRoot%\Installer\{AC76BA86-7AD7-1033-7B44-AC0F074E4100}\SC_Reader.ico.

Does anyone know what to do? I've seen on the internet that various people have had the same problem, but I have yet to read a working solution. I'm considering a System Restore...

By the way, I don't know about the Icon change but I got blurred Icons once after a Chrome Update. All I did is restarted the explorer and FIXED! You know :Winkey + R

When booting up, my friend's computer only shows the desktop wallpaper. I brought up the Task manager... and explorer.exe IS there... however, the icons/taskbar aren't visible. When i end the explorer process, then start it again with the new task feature... everything loads up fast and correct.
Why does this happen!?

Hi guys.
I need abit of help, i hope you can help me.
This started happening a few weeks ago, i thought it were my drivers or something, so i replaced them, but it still happend - My desktop icons and my taskbar disappear, meaning i have to reset my computer.

A:No desktop icons or taskbar on startup

Righto so no taskbar, and desktop icons.

Does hitting the windows key bring anything up or is the only thing you can access is the task manager?

Also try booting your pc up in safe mode, as you start up your pc keep hitting F8 on your keyboard and then when it brings it up, select "safe mode" report back if your icons and taskbar are there.

Right before I was rebooting my computer yesterday, I got a dll error (i couldn't read the error it flashed to quickly).

Since rebooting the taskbar & desktop icon keep flashing on/off.

I ran chkdsk, sfc/scannow, vundofix, sdfix, combofix, and gmer. But I am still having the problem.

If I run explorer.exe twice, it fixes the problem until the next reboot.

Please help--this is so frustrating!

Hi guys.

I am going crazy with this problem of mine. See screenshot on how it looks like. This problem just occurred yesterday.

Here is my ancient laptop's specs:

Intel Pentium 4 - M (1.9GHz, single-core)
512MB RAM
40GB HDD
ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 (32MB)

Here is a list of what I already did:

*Copied explorer.exe from another laptop; didn't work, so it is safe to assume that it is not the problem
*Full scan with latest Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (v1.45), found nothing
*Safe Mode, still no icons
*Cleared IconCache.db but to my surprise, it was not rebuilt.

In the case I have lacked any information, kindly inform me. To my dismay, this is the longest time that I had spent troubleshooting.

Best regards.

A:No Icons in Desktop/Taskbar/Explorer

Hello Brionac, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since this has just happened, you might do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to hopefully fix it for you.

Hope this helps,

When I boot up the computer, everything looks normal through the Windows screen until I get a momentary flash of the Explorer taskbar in the lower left corner of the screen, then just a blue screen. No taskbar, no icons, no response to left or right click. Same in safe mode.

I tried a reboot from the startup disk, then reloaded Windows 98 and same problem. Is this a virus? any suggestions on how to fix it?

A:No desktop, no taskbar, no icons - Virus?

It's usually a conflict between shell files installed by one version of Internet Explorer conflicting with older Windows shell files.

A reinstall usually corrects this. I would try it again, only this time first boot to a command prompt and enter:

ren c:\windows\system\iemigrat.dll iemigrat.old

The icons and Taskbar on my desktop keep disappearing. The wallpaper stays. If I am fast enough I can access programs or files for the short time it is up. Otherwise I have to access everything through task manager. I have run AVG but that did not find anything. I cannot access Adaware to see what it can find. Also the same thing happens when I try to start in Safe Mode. I have tried to reset to previous configuration but that did not work either. I am somewhat of a computer doofus so I am not sure how to proceed. Please Help

A:Desktop Icons and taskbar disappear

Since you can get to task manager try this.

Start up the Windows XP Task Manager and select the Applications tab.

Now select the New Task button at the bottom of the window. A new smaller window will appear. In it simply type:

explorer.exe

explorer.exe is the Windows Program Manager (or Windows Explorer.) It manages the Windows Graphical Shell including the Start menu, taskbar, desktop, and File Manager. By restarting this process the graphical interface for Windows will reappear.

I would be more curious as to exactly what services you disabled. Nothing in startup should prevent proper boot.
Did you check their dependencies before deactivating them?

I just got a Dell XPS laptop, x64, and, so far, I have no real issues with Windows 7. I like a clean desktop and, on my XP machines, moved the desktop icons with ease. With the new operating system, I've done that, too, but some icon cannot be moved in the traditional way. Is there a way to move My Document, My Pictures, My Computer, etc., to the taskbar?

I apologize if this has been discussed. Many thanks for any assistance.

A:Desktop taskbar icons all gone? Nothing able to be minimised?? HELP!

Hello

This has happened to a few people. The usual way to get out of this is to repair system files that have become corrupted. The usual route is to run the system file checker and see if it sorts things out, it may not and so the next step is to run the DISM tool to restore files.

1. Click the Cortana circle and type in command, this should give you the link to the Command prompt, right click it and select Run as administrator.
2. Accept the UAC prompt and then enter sfc /scannow in the Administrator: Command Prompt window.
3. Wait until it has completed and see what is reported. This will take several minutes. You may want to do a restart to see if there is any improvement.
4. If still not fixed then proceed to the DISM which is run as before from the Administrator: Command Prompt window. Enter the following command: DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
5. Again wait several minutes for it to complete and review the result. As before restart and see if it has made any difference.

Post back your results and we will help you further if needed. Here are a couple of tutorials which go through the procedure in more detail:
SFC Command - Run in Windows 10
DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image

Just download it and click it.Doing this shouldn't hurt anything, but make a System Restore point first as a precaution.

A:Taskbar or Desktop icons don't load for over 20+ min...

PILL5B3RRY,

There are many things that can cause this type of drastic slow-down. I would first try scanning your PC for malware/viruses:

Go to:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/showthread.php?t=15968

and follow the steps documented on this page.

Other possible problems:

- PC's "Turbo" or "Cache" mode has been disabled via a switch or in the BIOS setup causing the processor to run slow.

- HARD Drive controller(s) have been demoted from DMA (fast access) to PIO mode due to excessive errors in reading media (usually DVD or CD). Check out:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817472

http://winhlp.com/node/10

- Paging or virtual memory has been disabled or memory has been reduced.

- A buggy driver (usually video or hard disk) or hardware device has been installed that's causing conflicts and slowing the PC down.

- A rogue program or service is hogging all of the PC's CPU bandwidth and/or memory

I would start by scanning for viruses first. If you can recall any changes that happened prior to this problem - please reply with the details (new software, hardware, updates, settings, drivers, etc).

- John

Hi Killstat!!

Can you verify whether your explorer.exe is running at startup?



If it is not running, try type in "explorer.exe" and run the application. See whether you get back the taskbar.



If the explorer is already running, you can download this registry and merge it by double clicking on it:Restore taskbar




Post back about the results here ok. I will try to guide further if it still not resolve your issue

A:TaskBar & DeskTop Icons coming & going

Hello, jv320i
Welcome to TSF

My name is Billy O'Neal and I will be helping you. (Billy or Bill is fine, if you like.)
Please give me some time to look over your computer's log(s).
Please take note of the following:In the meantime, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
Finally, please reply using the button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here. We get a lot of people who simply leave, and if there is no contact for that amount of time I will have to assume you have "vanished" .

Please download OTScanIt2.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTScanIt2 on your desktop.

Note: You must be logged on to the system with an account that has Administrator privileges to run this program.Close ALL OTHER PROGRAMS.
Open the OTScanIt2 folder and double-click on OTScanIt2.exe to start the program (if you are running on Vista then right-click the program and choose Run as Administrator).
Click the Scan All Users checkbox on the toolbar.
Under Rootkit Search click Yes
Do not change any other settings.
Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
Close Notepad (saving the change if necessry).
Use the Add Reply button and Attach the scan back here (do not copy/paste it as it will be too big to fit into the post). It will be located in the OTScanIt2 folder and named OTScanIt.txt.

In your next reply, please include the following:OTScanIt.txt (Attached)

Okay, so I recently removed some trojans using the program Spyware Doctor. Upon reboot and logging in, the taskbar and desktop icons appear, then disappear, then appear again several times before just remaining gone.

When I bring up the Processes under the Task Manager while this is going on, explorer.exe disappears and appears like the taskbar and desktop icons.

Now, thinking maybe my shell is screwed up, i went to the registry key [HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell] and made sure the shell path was "explorer.exe." It was, and nothing changed.

I have Windows XP.

Help?

Please help! They all flash on and off every 10 seconds or so for several minutes and then ultimately dissappear for good. I can still use task manager most of the time, but it also freezes up frequently. I ran trend micro security pro 2008 scan and found no virus. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi everybody,

ok.... i may be hidden, have you tried the windows key its the one next to the alt key on the bottem left of the keyboard.

see if this brings up the start menu. if it does you have have other issues, like the monitor might be the wrong size and the start button of off of the screen or some one is playing a very normal joke on you :)

thanks

Yesterday, I upgraded my Vostro 1500 laptp from WinXP to Win7 without any problem except for icon size. Correct grahpic driver (GEForce 8400M GS) for Win7 was also updated. I like the smaller icons size on desktop and taskbar in WinXP with native screen resolution of 1280 x 800. After converting to win7, the screen size was also restored to 1280 x 800 too. But the icons size on both desktop and taskbar is rather bigger in Win7. (Text size is just fine). I could not resize the same icon size as in Win XP. I tried to change but 9 point Segoe UI at 96pixels per inch is default in Win7. The scale to the percentage of normal size is 100% or above, not less than 100%. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

A:How to re-size icons on desktop and taskbar?

Just right click the open space on the desktop and choose view - small icons.
